A Carrot Cake, A Banana Bread and A Somewhere-Inbetween!

If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably seen the following recipes:

I had a strong craving to bake today while speaking to my cousin over FaceTime as she was baking a cake for her mums birthday. After scouring the cupboards and fridge I realised that I didn't have enough bananas to make a banana bread and carrots to make a carrot cake so decided to mix it up a little!

This cake is juicy, moist and delicious... the best part? It's added-sugar free and low fat! All natural ingredients only. This once again proves that healthy-eating doesn't have to be boring and tasteless!

-      - 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
-      - 1 tsp cinnamon
-      - 1 tsp baking powder
-      - 1/8 tsp mixed cloves
-      - 2 eggs, beaten
-      - 1 large banana
-      - 2 medium finely grated carrots
-      - 1/3 cup mixed nuts (cashews, walnuts and hazlenuts) finely chopped (in a food processor)
-      - 1 tbsp chickpeas (trust me!)
-      - 1/3 cup raisins
-      - 8 dates (stones removed)
-      - 3 tbsp sunflower (or rapeseed) oil
-      - 1 tsp sesame seeds to top

1.   Preheat oven to GM 4 and grease your cake/loaf tin (it helps to put-greaseproof paper on the bottom but this is not a necessity).
2.   Mix the banana, oil, chickpeas and dates in a food processer until almost smooth. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves and mix together before adding the beaten eggs and banana mixture.
3.   Add the grated carrots, nuts and raisins and fold everything together until combined.
4.   Pour into your cake/ loaf tin and sprinkle with sesame seeds (if desired) bake for 50 minutes or until risen.

You can also create a cream-cheese topping for this cake if you want something a bit more decadent! Just mix together 100g low-fat Philadelphia cream cheese, 100g 0% Greek yoghurt (preferably Fage/ Total), 1 tbsp sugar/ honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla (if using the sugar).

I’ve just enjoyed a nice slice of this in the sun! It’s starting to get too hot now though so I thought I better update my blog (while sitting under the fan)!

What’s the weather like where you are? What are your opinions on some people’s pretenses that healthy food is boring and tasteless?!
